BBC Sport announced today that West Bromidic Albion manager, Roy Dodgson, has been unanimously appointed the new England manager by a four-man selection panel. He succeeds former manager, Fabio Cappello, for the job.

The 64-year-old Hodgson has managed 19 teams over 36 years including the Swiss (1992-95), the U.A.E. (2002-04) and Finnish (2006-07) national teams. 

Hodgson is reported to have signed a four-year contract with the English national squad. 

The former Liverpool boss will preside over WBA's last two matches in the English Premier League before departing for the national managerial duties. The Baggies are due to play Bolton at the Reebok Stadium and Arsenal at home.

Chris Hughton is touted to be the next Baggies boss, as reported in the Daily Mail

Is Roy Hodgson the right man for the job? Will he finally bring the English squad out of mediocrity? Will he be the man to propel England to the final in the Euros this summer?

Hodgson has managed a wide spectrum of teams—will it be enough, will the people stand up for him, will the players back him up?
